Things to Know Before You Go
The Ginger Factory will be of interest to foodies and families with kids.

The Ginger Factory is wheelchair-accessible, with the exception of the Overboard boat ride. There are a couple of wheelchairs available to rent on-site.
How to Get There
The Ginger Factory is located in the little town of Yandina on the Sunshine Coast, about 68 miles (110 kilometers) north of Brisbane Airport and 23 miles (37 kilometers) south of Noosa. It’s under a 1-mile (1.5-kilometer) walk from Yandina station; trains from Roma Street in Brisbane take a couple of hours.
When to Get There
The Ginger Factory is open from morning until late afternoon seven days a week, closing only on Christmas Day. It’s at its busiest during the Australian summer break (December and January), so aim to visit on a midweek morning for a quieter experience during that time.
Enjoy the Sunshine Coast with Kids
The Sunshine Coast is one of Australia’s favorite family-vacation destinations. Besides the Ginger Factory, highlights include the Australia Zoo, where the Irwin family made their name; SEA LIFE® Sunshine Coast; and the Aussie World theme park. Caloundra has great rock pools, while Noosa National Park is a top location for spotting koalas.
